A wooden cutting board. A cutting board (also known as a chopping board) is a kitchen utensil used as a protective surface on which to cut or slice things. Cutting boards are often made of wood, plastic or cork. Glass cutting boards are also available, and although easy to clean, may dull or damage a knife during use.
As long as you remember to oil the board, it will also remain waterproof too. A chunky wooden board also provides an ideal surface for harder to chop foods such as meat or root vegetables
